Experimental study of locally loaded timber in compression perpendicular to the grain
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
Since the test method for compression strength perpendicular to the grain was changed from a partial area to a full area loading test, strength values for softwood in EN 338 were significantly reduced. Consequently, a change in Eurocode 5 was necessary to ensure an equivalent resistance level in compression perpendicular to the grain. Experimental results are presented with wood in compression perpendicular to the grain. A numerical model is also presented. This model was used to establish a rule of calculation proposed at the P21A-Committee of the technical and construction equipment standardization office (BNTEC).

Article dans une revue avec comité de lecturePAŁUBICKI, Bartosz; MARCHAL, Rémy; BUTAUD, Jean-Claude; DENAUD, Louis; BLERON, Laurent; COLLET, Robert; KOWALUK, Grzegorz (Springer Verlag, 2010)In the present paper, a novel method for veneer checks measurement and description based on digital image analysis is evaluated. According to this method, the camera is located sideways to the veneer allowing for viewing ...
Cutting Forces in basic and real life wood machining processes review, COST Action E35 2004-2008: Wood machining - Micromechanics and fracture Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureMARCHAL, Rémy; MOTHE, Frédéric; DENAUD, Louis; THIBAUT, Bernard; BLERON, Laurent (De Gruyter, 2009)The data available in the literature concerning wood cutting forces permit to build models or to simulate the main wood machining processes (milling, sawing, peeling etc.). This approach contributes to a better understanding ...
Online control of wood peeling process: acoustical and vibratory measurements of lathe checks frequency Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureDENAUD, Louis; BLERON, Laurent; RATLE, Alain; MARCHAL, Rémy (Springer Nature (since 2011)/EDP Science (until 2010), 2007)In the course of most wood machining processes, operators are usually able to detect various problems simply by hearing the sound emitted by the process. This is especially true for wood peeling. Lathe checks formation has ...
Wood peeling process monitoring: a comparison of signal processing methods to estimate veneer average lathe check frequency Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureDENAUD, Louis; BLERON, Laurent; EYMA, Florent; MARCHAL, Rémy (Springer Verlag, 2012)Experienced peeling operators are able to adjust the settings of their device by hearing the sound coming from the process. Based on this idea, a research program was undertaken to evaluate the possibility of using acoustic ...
The effect of log heating temperature on the peeling process and veneer quality: beech, birch, and spruce case studies Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureDUPLEIX, Anna; DENAUD, Louis; BLERON, Laurent; MARCHAL, Rémy; HUGHES, Mark (Springer Verlag, 2013)Heating green-wood prior to peeling is necessary to improve both peeling process and quality of veneer. This study investigates optimum heating temperatures by soaking of beech, birch and spruce. Experiments have studied ...
